murmeln – otherwise known as Ben R. Osborn, multi-instrumentalist and award-winning composer and writer. In 2017 murmeln’s debut EP Murmeln um Schiffland was simultaneously released as a book of poems and drawings, by Bristol’s Moot Press, and a five-track audio download on Berlin’s WANDA Portal. Produced by Berlin artist yr lovely dead moon and mastered by cult songwriter-producer Emperor X, it includes collaborations with songwriter-harpist Rowan Coupland. Blending ambient electronica, folk and bittersweet slacker-pop, it was featured on BBC Introducing and BCFM.
Now signed to Alex Stolze’s Nonostar Records, murmeln’s upcoming debut album (to be released late 2018) promises a move toward piano-led classically inspired arrangements and electronic vistas.
‘Beautiful’ – BBC Introducing
“Murmeln’s vast history of composition has led him to a subtle sonic blend of electro-acoustic, classical and slacker folk. Haiku and Tanka guide the listener through a dreamlike landscape of modern day archetypes, between the lines and off the page” – WANDA.
“Drifts tide-like between the connected poles of autobiography and dream-narrative, or back and forth along the route of passage between poem – lyric – song. Winter transfigures into spring and Berlin is afloat, the singer-poet ‘muttering at ship-country’.” – Moot Press
